Mac DeMarco Salad Days & Show # 503

Mac DeMarco is a Canadian artist who is known for his strange prankster live antics and lyrical content. Currently residing in Brooklyn, New York, but originally from British Columbia, DeMarco has released an EP (Rock And Roll Night Club) and an album entitled 2. The album 2, showed a change in musical style, but still catered to DeMarco’s style. With his newest release, Salad Days, DeMarco shows a growth in his song writing ability still keeping true to his original style, but gravitating more towards maturity at the same time. A good way to describe Salad Days would be that it is maturely playful with more perspective. DeMarco has mentioned Jonathan Richman and Steely Dan as influences, among others. However, he is commonly lumped into the Indie Rock genre. The first single from Salad Days "Passing Out The Pieces" features lazy melodies and synthesizers sounding as if they were slowed down on purpose, but originally recorded at a faster speed. Salad Days was released on April 1st, 2014 on the Captured Tracks label.
